Help Thousands of Young People Exiting Foster Care

Largely due to the success of its jobs program, iFoster also launched a year-long internship program, which won best new AmeriCorps Program in 2019. The internship program trains transition-age youth (TAY) to help their peers connect to resources they need to become independent.

iFoster is seeking funds to match federal funds for its TAY AmeriCorps program, allowing the nonprofit to train 262 additional youth in 2023, who will provide peer navigation to tens of thousands of young people in foster care, while at the same time building their jobs skills and paying their way through college.   

“It’s a professional development pathway for our young people who are able to support the children in the system that are coming along behind them,” says iFoster Co-Founder Serita Cox. “We’re empowering thousands of new Seritas who have an innate passion to give the next generation of foster kids a fighting chance,” adds Reid, proudly.
